A tremendous amount has changed in a few years for our organization. Even though our Recognition 2018 Event will be quite different, please enjoy a video of the Concordance Academy Partners Dinner held in 2015 to better understand the joy of celebrating the journey of our participants and partnerships with our volunteers.
Partnership teams are at the heart of our re-entry model. Volunteers provide the support our participants need to plug into the larger community.
